In 1986, Congress
passed the Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act (AHERA) which mandated the Asbestos-Containing Materials in
Schools Rule, 40 CFR Part 763. It requires all primary and secondary school buildings to be inspected by AHERA
accredited inspectors and to identify all asbestos-containing building materials. The rule further requires the
development of a management plan by an AHERA accredited management planner that is based on the findings of the
inspection. The management plan outlines our intent in controlling the potential for exposure to asbestos fibers in our
In February 2001,
Hawaii Administrative Rules Chapter 11-502 was adopted by the Hawaii State Legislature. These rules essentially mirror
the requirements of the AHERA regulations. In both cases, the rule requires our school to notify parents, teachers, and
employees of the presence and status of asbestos containing material in our school buildings.
The initial inspection
of our school was conducted in June, 2018 and identifies
some asbestos-containing materials. Since that time, we continue to conduct periodic surveillances in June and
December and re-inspections to ensure that the asbestos-containing materials remain in good condition and do not
pose a hazard to our students and staff.
management plan was drafted based on our initial inspection and submitted to the Hawaii State Department of Health.
It outlines in detail the methods we will use to maintain the material in a safe manner. The management plan is updated
regularly as asbestos is removed, or conditions change.
A copy of the
management plan is on file in the administrative office and is available for your review during our regular school hours.
